Jacob 6:2 And the day that he shall set his hand again the second time to recover his people, is the day, yea, even the last time, that the servants of the Lord shall go forth in his power, to nourish and prune his vineyard; and after that the end soon cometh.

Cutest video ever!

Cutest video ever...At the very beginning you hear Elder Morgan tell the kids to go find a chameleon (the Malagasy are afraid of chameleons because they think they’re poisonous so it’s always a big deal when the missionaries touch them). Taylor then tells the kids to smile “ Tsiky tsiky tsara”. That cute little boy in the front left is asking, “Is it a picture? Who? Who? Who?” And you hear Taylor tell him it’s a video.

More cute kids!

Ha, when I was talking to all the kids, we were just naming a ton of different "laoka" that they like. Laoka is toppings for rice, they have a ton of kinds, so we were just naming a bunch.

Mada Adventures...some more!

It was a really weird week, to say the least. And sorry ahead of time if there are misspellings in this, I got a crazy keyboard again. 

Anyway, Easter afternoon was fun. After we emailed last week, we bought pizza and took it to the park, and ate it in the poo covered grass. Not exactly an Orem park, but not too bad. 

After, we went out to this giant memorial statue in the middle of the lake. It's a memorial for all the Malagasies who died fighting for the French, I guess. TONS of people were swarming it for the holiday.

Anyway, Bates and I found a secret passageway that went inside the statue. It smelled like death on the inside, but we found a ladder that went up this little chute up to the top of the inside of the statue. We had some Gasy homies climb it with us, we looked like we had been working in a coal mine all day when we finished. So dirty.

Luckily, we are white, which is usually a downside here, but security didn't stop us from walking into the nice hotel to wash off in the bathroom. Sick afternoon.

On Tuesday I went on splits with Elder Seifert, a guy from Provo. I stayed in their place in Ampitatafika, Mitchell's area. But I worked in Itaosy. I got to spend the night at Mitchell's though, it was way fun. On splits? I ran into a little kid with no leg, not too weird, but he chased me down and started kicking me in the shins with his plastic leg, stinking hurt.

Back in my area, I was visiting the family from Toliary, and they said that Worthen told them that I died, and that's why I was gone on Tuesday. They told me that they were all crying and didn't eat that night, haha I was laughing so hard when they told me. They believe it so easily. I was on splits with Mitchell on Thursday, and I told a family that Worthen died, and they got so sad. When he got back, we told them he got resurrected and they were so amazed. It's too easy to trick people here... dont worry, they eventually find out that we are kidding.

Oh, and now mine and Worthen's voices are going to be sounding in English classes all over now. This girl who teaches English recorded us reading this horribly written English script for all the people she teaches so they can practice our accents haha.

Lastly.. we got to make a fun late night hospital trip the other day. Smith split his lip pretty much in half, so we all went to the hospital, didn't get home til way late. He is fine now, plus Bates and I got to watch an hour and a half of WWE while we waited. The Rock won.

Conference will be in English. Saturday sessions in English, then Sunday in Malagasy at the church. Only outside of Tana (the Capital) is it always in Malagasy only. But we will get to see it in a few weeks.

Anyway, that's all for now. Love you, thanks for everything.


A couple random pics for ya...
